A Walk in the Chinese Garden & Japanese Garden (Part 2 of 2)

Continued from A Walk in the Chinese Garden & Japanese Garden (Part 1 of 2).

Something new in the Chinese Garden is this 2CG Jurong which is a community garden project launched in November 2013. It aims to engage senior citizens to stay physically, mentally and socially active and healthy through gardening. This garden comprises of 4 areas: 1) Bonsai 2) Vegetable Farming 3) Herbs & Spices and 4) Landscape. And I must say this was probably my favourite part of the whole tour because there were so many delicate components to explore within the world of gardening. Not forgetting being inches close to nature too.

Somehow this reminded me of the movie “Friday the 13th” lol it’s actually quite scary to look at it cos’ it looks alive

Quite a joy to walk through the herbs & spices garden because I saw so many different flower pots made from our daily items that I’d never even think of associating them with gardening. Very creative indeed.

And here’s the Japanese Garden that looks extremely calm and serene. Designed to evoke inner peace and harmony. Really felt relaxing being here.

And this marked the end of our walk. I really didn’t expect the Chinese Garden and Japanese Garden to have that many photogenic spots and sights given that it’s such an old park now and I’m really glad that the husband and I had come by for a last look before anything changes in the time to come. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, exploring the place just like tourists on holiday except we were on homeland ground. The whole experience was better than we expected and we can’t wait to see how this is going to be redeveloped with the new Science Centre, etc.
